Food Waste Solved
 
Nationally, yard trimmings and food waste constitute 27 percent of the waste stream.  In Oregon and in other areas of the country, composting programs are being developed to find beneficial uses for these materials.

Republic Services’ Pacific Region Compost Facility was Oregon’s first composting facility permitted to process Type III feed stocks (meat, dairy products and non-vegetative food waste) using advanced separator screen technology. Since then, commercial and residential customers have doubled the amount of food waste they recycle, contributing to 400% more compost available for local farms and others.

Republic Services is focused on making composting simple and efficient. We have developed programs to effectively remove materials that can be beneficially reused and produce a high quality end-market material.
